I know this is a strange name for a salmon dish but it is the duck sauce that made this into such an enjoyable meal.
I have to preface this by saying, I don't usually buy duck sauce, not that there is anything wrong with it, but I like to make my own marinades and sauces and usually do. My daughter, on the other hand, keeps buying large bottles of the stuff and when I last looked, I found three bottles on the shelf. It is time to use it up after having a talk with her about duck sauce. She tends to collect mayonnaise also. Did I deprive her as a child?
When I was making my salmon, I was thinking a honey-mustard marinade. When, I opened the refrigerator door, I saw a bottle of opened duck sauce. Wonder who put it there? Not me. I changed my choice of recipe and took out the duck sauce. I made a great salmon with it and some crumbs.
